401(k) * IRC plans
401k plans are the most popular type of retirement plan used today. They can be a powerful tool in promoting financial security in retirement and are a valuable option for businesses considering a retirement plan, providing benefits to employees and their employers.
For a limited time, due to Corona Virus Pandemic Americans will be able to withdraw money from tax-deferred accounts without penalties under a stimulus package signed into law Friday by President Trump. Rules on 401(k) loans will be relaxed, and some retirees can avoid so-called required minimum distribution, or RMD, rules that might have been onerous. Fortune.com
